Cory Hall faces new charges in brutal killing of his uncle

Choked victim with skillet, slammed head on floor

MIAMI TOWNSHIP, Ohio - A grand jury brought new charges against Cory Hall on Wednesday in the brutal killing of his uncle.

Hall said he shoved the handle of an iron skillet down his uncle's throat until he passed out and slammed his head on the kitchen floor until he died, police said. 

The indictment lists two counts of murder as well as domestic violence, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse.

Hall, 38, admitted killing Paul Bramlage of Miami Township when Hamilton County Sheriff's detectives interviewed him June 25 about a missing person's report on his uncle, they said.

Hall then led detectives to the body.

Hall told detectives the killing happened on or about May 23 in Bramlage's home at 7104 Wesselman Road in Miami Township. Hall also lived there.

Hall said he put the body in a pickup and dumped it on the side of a road in rural Dearborn County, Indiana.

Hall did not say why he allegedly killed his uncle.

Hall pleaded not guilty June 27 to charges of murder and abuse of a corpse.

Bond was set at $500,000.
